Today would of been Maurice Sendak's 85th birthday and Google have honoured him with an inspired animated doodle.
I have done my own little doodle of Max in celebration of the great illustrator and story teller.
And if you have a spare 40 minutes or so watch this. In this intriguing documentary Maurice talks candidly about his youth, family, thoughts on death and his career and some of the controversies that came from his books.
